Did you know losing 50-100 hair strands daily is normal?

The real worry starts when you notice hair falling out after showering, brushing your hair, or finding it on your pillow. This can be devastating and can shake your confidence.

Hair loss is not only a cosmetic concern, its cause lies deep beneath. Many quick-fix solutions or temporary hair loss treatments attract patients claiming instant hair fall arrest, but they are only superficial and temporary. However, homeopathic medicine for hair loss offers a promising role for a long-lasting hair fall solution

Let us understand the basic hair growth cycle.

It is divided into 3 phases: Growth phase, Transition phase, and Resting phase. The hair growth cycle occurs approximately 10-20 times in a person's lifetime.

  1. Growth Phase (Anagen) – As the name suggests this is a hair growth phase, where hair follicles multiply rapidly and produce new hair strands resulting in long and thicker hair.
  2. Transition Phase (Catagen) – In this phase, the hair follicle is separated from its blood supply and starts to shrink which results in the shedding of hair.
  3. Resting Phase (Telogen) – Here hair stops from growing and comes to a standstill, This is an inactive or resting period before making way for new growth.

What are the factors resulting in Hair Loss?

According to Materia Novum – The Journal of Homeopathy

Hair loss is a complex issue and depends on many factors which prevent hair growth. Unlike the conventional medicine systems which only suppress the symptoms, and treat specific issues, homeopathy focuses on treating the problem from its root. Homeopathy treatment for hair loss considers factors such as genetics, medical history, stress, autoimmune conditions, nutritional deficiencies, and lifestyle of the individual.

  1. Genetic factors - Genetic factors significantly contribute to hair loss in both males and females, inherited from our relatives.
  2. Medical history - Many autoimmune diseases, long use of steroids, endocrine disorders, and severe long-lasting illness can lead to hair loss.
  3. Stress - Stress or health issues can lead to a condition called telogen effluvium. This condition causes rapid hair loss and shedding of over 100 hair strands at a time.
  4. Hormonal Changes - Puberty, pregnancy, menopause, PCOS, and contribute to hair loss due to hormonal imbalance.

Homeopathic Medicine for Hair Loss & Causes

  1. Nutritional Deficiencies - Lack of essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and proteins weakens hair follicles.
  2. Environmental Factors - Pollution, UV exposure, and harsh weather conditions contribute to hair damage.
  3. Dandruff - Medical conditions like seborrheic dermatitis cause scalp inflammation and weaken hair follicles.
  4. Medications - Certain drugs used for various health conditions such as epilepsy, thyroid, cancer, infertility, and depression possess hair loss as a side effect

Role of Homeopathy in treating hair loss

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), homeopathy is the 2nd largest system of medicine in the world based on the like cures like principle. Homeopathy emphasizes on treating a person as a whole rather than just providing symptomatic relief. This holistic approach treats the main reason for hair loss or hair thinning. It gives long-lasting results and has no negative effects.

The homeopathic approach corrects lifestyle, deficiencies and provides emotional stability promoting overall wellbeing
